Looking for a good software program to migrate from an HDD to a new SSD!
Does anyone have any recommendations?

Acronis True Image is what I've been using personally and on the test systems for years. Highly recommended if you are going to be cloning.

i've been using EaseUS ToDo Backup, their freeware version since 2008 and have had zero issues with it - the interface is dummy proof, and haven't had a backup corrupt or fail. I'd gone thru all the others, starting with Acronis and had two acronis backups that proved to be worthless causing me to re-install my complete system (I run an internet business from my home).

Plus the EaseUS software does a quicker job - running to an external SSD hard drive thru a USB 3 port, cloning 177 GB takes 1.5 to 1.75 hours. When i went to a new mobo with additional sata 6gb ports, running OS SSD to internal SSD, complete "sector by sector" clones take 28-30 minutes. Samsung's migration software, Seagates version, windows backup utility, all the others all seem to want 3 to 8 hours to do a complete backup or clone on my system

fwiw
